Over the past couple of years I have been drawn to neutral shades of nail polish, rather than the letterbox red I used to favour. Perhaps it is the increasing rise of grey’s popularity within the interior design world that leads me to adore it even more. When I heard that my favourite beauty brand – Liz Earle – had a nail polish in a shade named Grey Dawn I knew I had to try it.
It comes in a smart navy box and written on this box is a description that informs you that the nail colour is a fortifying, chip-resistant formula, that lasts up to 12 days. It also lets you know it is enriched with avocado and borage oils. I was clueless as to what borage oil was so after researching I discovered it is a moisturising formula, derived from a gorgeous bright blue flower.
It paints on very smoothly and dries speedily. Once dry it is shiny and tough. I would recommend using two coats for a bolder colour and one for a more subtle grey shade, both are incredibly pretty.
I really recommend trying this shade of polish for the spring. It is a lovely fresh and gentle grey.
